Snuffle snuffle

What lovely sunny weather. Beebee and I made the most of it the other day and went on a picnic together. We sat in the sunshine and ate some delicious honey Beebee had brought.

We were watching all the amazing insects that were buzzing around and saw lots of different types of butterflies. Beebee's favourite is the peacock because if its beautiful colours. I think my favourite is the speckled wood because there are always lots near my woodland sett!

Which ones are your favourites and why?

Oh no! Springwatch is finished for another year! It makes me quite sad. I always looked forward to my nightly installments of Chris, Kate, Martin and Simon, not to mention the animal stars! I hope the little kestrel chicks will be alright without their mum, and that all the chicks do well. I can't wait to hear more about the sparrowhawk youngsters when Autumnwatch starts.

If you're a bit like me and missing the nest cameras already, why not check out some of The Wildlife Trusts' very own live videos? Cheshire Wildlife Trust has a swallow cam following the fortunes of a young family near them, and Alderney Wildlife Trust has set up a puffin cam in a seabird colony.

Have a look at them here:

Those Springwatch kestrel chicks are so lucky - did you see them eating all those lovely, juicy earthworms this week? Yum yum, there really is nothing tastier. The wet weather has been good for one thing at least. With all those worms about, blackbirds and badgers aren't short of their favourite snacks!

I've been seeing lots of frogs hopping about in the damp grass too. I wonder if lots of this year's tadpoles are starting to turn into adults and traveling about to look for new ponds? It means I have to watch where I tread though. I've nearly squished a few already!

    We have lots of cats near our house and they come into my garden but we have a light in the garden and it lights up when something or someone comes nar it.The cats go under it and I think it scares my mum!

    Last night I was looking out my bedroom window and I saw a Fox nipping past .It was at 11:00 and it had a big bushy tail.

    I saw a few scrapes and some torn out fur on the grass in a local park yesterday, obviously rabbits fighting. What would they be fighting about, though, at this time of year? My teacher said he's known them to have kittens as late as December in a wool bale, how territorial are the bucks though? (We human does are generally more civilised, but I don't have any rabbit friends)
